1 Samuel 28:1 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

The Philistines gathered their armies together - Sir Isaac Newton conjectures that the Philistines had got a great increase to their armies by vast numbers of men which Amasis had driven out of Egypt.

Thou shalt go out with me to battle - This he said, being deceived by what David had told him.

It may be also, that from the Angels, who are present in the things which are doing here, the dead do hear somewhat,
